Her current position is director of research for Old City Capital. Nisha has a B.A. from Harvard University and a MBA from Columbia University.
As a board member, Nisha contributes her business experience to increase resources for North Star Fund and raise awareness about our work. Nisha is a native New Yorker and the daughter of immigrants from India. She shares North Star Fund’s vision of a more equitable New York City and she relates to the struggles of the immigrant communities that North Star Fund supports.
“My parents came to the U.S. with very little money, but they worked hard and were able to become successful in many ways. I want to see all New Yorkers have the opportunity to work hard, succeed and prosper. The inherent inequalities in our society do not always allow this. North Star Fund fights to level the playing field.”
